I have been the UWM/MATC Transfer Specialist in the Department of Admissions and Recruitment since March 2011. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from UW-Milwaukee and my Master of Science in Educational Counseling from Concordia University. I am available to answer student questions about the transfer process, transferable credit, and planning the best classes at Milwaukee Area Technical College to eventually apply to a UW-Milwaukee degree. I thoroughly enjoy and am very dedicated to working with prospective students taking their next “educational step” from class choice options to the admission application process towards a Bachelor’s degree.

During the fall/spring terms I am at the MATC Downtown campus two days a week (Thursdays only for the summer) and all other days at my UWM campus location. I also attend MATC Transfer Days during the fall and spring terms; set up individual advising sessions at the other 3 MATC campuses (Mequon, Oak Creek & West Allis) during the academic school year as well as other outreach activities.

Feel free to contact me with questions regarding transferring from MATC to UWM. The best way to reach me is via email at csimms@uwm.edu, phone: MATC (414) 297-6295/UWM (414) 229-6019 or text (414) 465-2136 (during regular business hours Monday-Friday only, 8:00am - 4:30pm). Contact me today; it’s never too early to start the planning process!
